2013 Le Mans Moto2 Race Result: Treacherous Race Crowns Maiden Winner

Race summary and results for Moto2:

Scott Redding has taken his first ever Moto2 race win after an extremely tricky French Grand Prix. The British youngster rode a measured and careful race whilst maintaining a very consistent pace, taking the win after the race was red flagged due to rain with two laps to go. His teammate Mika Kallio finished in second place ahead of Belgian rider Xavier Simeon. Dominique Aegerter and hometown hero Johan Zarco completed the top five after initially pushing Redding very hard in the fight for victoy.

The race was an extremely dramatic affair and has major consequences for the championship race after team mates Tito Rabat and Pol Espargaro crashed in the early stages, both riders lost the front end in synchronised fashion at museum corner. Tom Luthi crashed a lap later while pole sitter Takaaki Nakagami crashed out of the lead, also losing the front at museum corner. Steven Odendaal, Axel Pons and Nico Terol were also casualties to the challenging conditions.

what a race

Belgian dominance in Moto2 ! Who'da thunk it ? Was that cool or what ? Shame about Xavier's 2nd place though.
Redding finally made good. Had to, with PE's incident. Good man.

Totally deserved win. I'd

Totally deserved win. I'd love to see SR on a proper prototype in 2014. In reality he'll probably get one of the new 2014 Honda or Yamaha lease engined bikes or a Pramac Ducati if BS leaves the series.
